In 2013, Rüzgâr sets out to make a documentary about a close friend Şevval, a trans LGBT activist. The timing of the documentary coincides with a transformational moment in Istanbul during the 2013 Gezi Park protests and the subsequent Pride march. The documentary shifts focus and we travel the streets meeting many activists instead of one, and get a sense of LGBTI activists’ contribution to the protests; we feel their exuberance, their hopes, and share their sense of humor. #resistayol is a fresh, exuberant documentary that reminds us of the many lively colors of human living.

Mosques in the 18th and 19th Century Paintings

In the works of western painters, we encounter mosques as the primary architectural elements that reflect the identity of the city of Istanbul. Often we can recognize the depicted landscape as Istanbul simply from the mosques.

The Search for Form

A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
